Acrylic Pouring Tutorial by Olga Soby​

NEW Color Split acrylic pouring ~ Paint and water only

In today’s acrylic pouring tutorial, let’s create a Beautiful Wave Dance Fluid Art with white river composition. For this fluid painting, my client gave me two paintings as the main reference. So, I need to combine the energy and playing movement of two seemingly completely different pour paintings.

I’m gonna work on diptych this time. Each of my panels is 16 by 16 inches cradle wood panels as always primed with gesso and taped sides. And for this painting, I’m gonna work with several different shades of blue, the white river in between, and some bright and beautiful golden accents.

Acrylic Pouring RECIPE used for today’s flow art painting:​

Acrylic paint is mixed with water only to a fluid consistency. I add approximately 30-50% of water to my colors. There is no exact % or proportion because this ratio depends on initial paint viscosity, which significantly varies from brand to brand and even from color to color.

So today, I want to work in fragments. I want to work on the bottom part first, and then I’m going to add colors at the top and work at the top corner, top diagonal. All of my colors are mixed with water only. If you guys have been watching me for a while you know this has been my most favorite mixture lately for so many different techniques. And I also want to add a secret message. “Harmony flow” is a secret message for today’s painting. I’m super excited to work on it and see how it turns out. So without further ado, let’s get started.

Check out these metallic and iridescent colors that really spark up so much in this painting, depending on the angle of light. 

And I think it really gives this painting a very moving and dynamic effect, like waves of water that are always moving and changing, and I can really feel this in this painting. There are so many beautiful details and lacing and cells. And what I love the most here is where this greenish-blue color blends into white all across the white river in the center. So, where this color blends into white, it creates the most beautiful tints of this color, from dark greenish-blue all the way to light turquoise. And I think it looks absolutely gorgeous. This is another color that works absolutely amazing next to white. Definitely a must-try! I hope you enjoyed the process and looking forward to hearing from you! Happy creating!
